Welcome to Safaritours.com! Discover what sustainability in travel is all about. Our sister site, Galapagos.com, focuses on Latin America, where Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution began to take root with his famous explorations of the Galapagos Islands. With Safaritours.com, we focus on Africa, where we – homo sapiens - began our own evolutionary journey. Indeed, the African continent is considered by most paleoanthropologists to be where the human species originated. Africa also is home to a spectacular variety of landscapes and cultures, and of course, the most stunning array of wildlife on Earth. It has more than 1,100 mammal species, from the majestic elephant to the tiny bush baby. Some 64 species of primates stretch across the diverse ecosystems of the continent, including the critically endangered Mountain Gorilla, largest of the living primates. Africa also supports about 2,600 species of birds, both resident and migratory. Africa is a true Noah’s Ark of natural wonder and beauty, with some of the friendliest and most hospitable people you will ever meet, from its modern bustling cities like Cape Town and Nairobi to tiny far flung villages.
